Due to a bridge outing on Lajunie Rd, the half marathon course for this year has changed to an out-and-back. The run starts off traveling through the neighborhood around Acadiana Park then down Louisiana Ave, before turning onto Shadow Bluff Dr. After crossing the river to get onto Lajunie Rd, the route takes a scenic detour via Maryview Farm Rd and Louisiana Ave to Butcher Switch Rd, before getting back onto Lajunie. The runners will take Lajunie to the turn-around and will skip the Butcher Switch loop on the way back, otherwise returning the way they came. This is a smooth, fast course. The only significant hill is the climb at the turn onto E Alexander St about 200 meters from the finish (which makes for a tremendous feeling of accomplishment when crossing the finish line).
